This set contains the three knives that are most frequently used in any kitchen: the chef's knife tackles the big jobs; the parer handles the small jobs; and the utility cuts everything in between. Each knife features a sturdy high-carbon stainless-steel blade that is hand forged for strength and then riveted to its resin-infused wood handle. The blades on LamsonSharp knives are hand honed for extra sharpness and each has a full tang, which means the blade extends all the way through the handle. This adds heft and balance to the knives. Although the handles are dishwasher-safe, it is best to hand wash fine cutlery like this in warm, soapy water. This three-piece set comes in an attractive gray box and would make an ideal housewarming gift. --Jill Marquis
